    Fired a rifle ten times (two spells of five bullets) during my brief time as an air cadet. Twas a Saturday thing.

    Of course I hadn't brought my glasses, so the small target was just a blur. Still did well :proud:


    I've also seen some guns at various airports- held by security of course :awesome:

    I saw a really old bolt action rifle cos we used it in a physics experiment. Yeah that's right, sometimes science can be interesting, bet you're all shocked now.

    Yh, there were a few AK-47's at a house I was staying at over the summer in Iraq. They are a thing of beauty, AK's.

    Here is a picture I snapped. I dont see the attraction of taking pictures with the gun in my hand particularly, its a bit common.

    I've fired an air rifle in a shooting range; and then in foreign countries you see the police officers/army men in the airports with guns like AK-47s or something lol.

    actually i've just realised that i have seen a gun, mostly cops in london:rolleyes: haha, but i'm meaning like up close and being able to hold it.
    I was in my dads office looking for some money so I could go out cos he wasnt home, and I went in a high up drawer in his wardrobe and found a revolver wrapped in a cloth, it had bullets in aswell, ready to shoot.

    Should I bring it up with him?

    My old landlord left behind loads of antique guns that were still capable of firing when he sold us the house. O, and we looked after a gun for somebody once upon a time. Knives scare me, i'd be fine with getting shot as long as it wasn't filled with hollow points.
